Mwanasiti has a grocery store. Her children help her, because it is the only source of income for covering the household expenses. For this reason, she constantly needs to supply her store with products. This is her third loan with Yehu. The loan will be invested in the purchase of wholesale groceries, like bags of rice, sugar, salt and flour, as well as canned goods, soft drinks, and other things that will allow her customers to have more variety. By doing this, she will be able to obtain good earnings and improve her quality of life.

Mwanasiti dreams that they will continue to support her with loans, so that she can continue to move forward and improve her quality of life.
